The program

This essential education program supports children in the under resourced, yet fundamental, area of preschool education in Sri Lanka. This program is available in kindergartens in three areas, Badulla, Galle and Wattala. Volunteers may choose which location they wish to participate in this program, each site offering so much in terms of sights to see and experiences to enjoy. Early childhood education is sadly a seemingly forgotten area in Sri Lanka’s education system, lacking direction and guidelines, funding and enough quality teaching staff. This program provides volunteers with the opportunity to share their support, knowledge and skills with those children in need, helping to shape lives and ensure children get the best start. It is essential that volunteers are enthusiastic and flexible as this program needs motivated volunteers who love caring for children and are willing to dedicate themselves to a number of tasks to enable the successful running of the kindergartens. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide education and support to Sri Lankan preschool children
  • Improve the future prospects of the children of Sri Lanka
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project, proving teaching assistance and quality care to help these wonderful children grow and thrive! The kindergarten programs gives volunteers a wonderful opportunity to associate with children from different backgrounds and ethnic communities. Volunteers will support the children in a multitude of ways, including helping by monitoring hygiene and educating the children about personal hygiene, assisting at meal times, cleaning, playing games and developing the children’s physical health through active movement. Please note that the kindergartens have holidays during April, August and December. Contact Love Volunteers to find out exact dates if planning to apply during these periods. While it is not a pre-requisite to joining this program, Love Volunteers highly recommend that all teaching and education volunteers complete the 120 hour TEFL course prior to volunteering.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Arranging games, art, activities and playing with the children
  • Helping the students to look after themselves
  • Feeding the children and cleaning
  • Teaching the students basic English, the alphabet and numeracy

Tagesablauf

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

Freizeitaktivitäten

This program works with kindergartens and pre-school centres in three locations: Wattala, Galle and Badulla. Volunteers can note their preference for a particular location if they wish or allow our local team to assign them according to need and best fit.

Wattala lies some 10 mins away from the capital city of Colombo and contains enough diversity and interest to engage every visitor.

Galle is the historic jewel in Sri Lanka's crown. A UNESCO World Heritage site and famous for its eponymous Fort this port city is an absolute delight and rewards visitors with its architecture, culture and atmosphere. Transport to Galle is arranged by our local team and included in the program fee.

Badulla is an inland town, set amidst soaring mountains and hills covered in tea plantations. An eco-tourism hub and one of Sri Lanka's oldest towns this is an authentic and restful place in which to be based. Volunteers take a 12 hour scenic train ride from Colombo (the cost of which is included in the program fee) to Badulla. The train departs from Colombo Fort Train Station and the local team will make all arrangements and assist volunteers onto the train (the cost is included in the program fee). The journey takes participants through some of the most amazing scenery this beautiful country has to offer and is highly recommended.

Abholung vom Flughafen Bandaranaike International Airport

Upon arrival into Colombo you will be met at the airport by our local team.  Transport is provided to the Volunteer Center in Wattala and accommodation is provided here for all volunteers with those participating on programs in Galle and Badulla making their way to these destinations on Sunday (Galle volunteers may take the train directly from Colombo to Galle if arriving early in the day).

An orientation session will take place when time permits to cover local and regional customs, basic words and phrases, transport and, of course, what to expect from your volunteering experience.

If you are volunteering in Galle or Badulla you will be assisted on to the train, met on arrival and taken to the Volunteer Centre and Host Family (if applicable). Local staff will provide a training session pertinent to your placement and our team will go over local amenities and answer any questions you may have.

Unterkunft

Volunteers on this wonderful program will either be accommodated within the fully equipped Volunteer Centre or with trusted local Host Families. In both cases rooms are comfortable and may be shared with up to 2 other volunteers.

The Volunteer Centre provides all the necessary amenities and is open to all volunteers regardless of where they are accommodated. Facilities include hot showers, laundry and kitchen areas, free Wifi, fans and air-conditioning (available on request in the summer months). Bed linen is provided at both the Volunteer Centre and Host Family homes so volunteers need only take personal toiletries and towel(s).

Host families are experienced at caring for our volunteers and make everyone feel welcome. Their homes may be basic by international standards but this is more than made up for by generosity of spirit. Wifi and laundry facilities may not be available in the host family home and volunteers are encouraged to make use of these at the Volunteer Centre. The Volunteer Centre is located close to the placements and to host families so it’s super easy to get around.

Volunteers for programs in Badulla and Galle (dependent on arrival timing) will spend their first night in the Volunteer Centre in Wattala before travelling to their destination the following day. Our local team makes all in-country transport and accommodation arrangements so it’s stress-free.

sambal.
